The philosophy department currently has 11 full-time faculty members (and two emeritus members) with specialties ranging from ancient to recent philosophy, Plato and Aristotle to Kripke and Lewis. We offer particular expertise in philosophical logic and in the region of analytic thought where issues in metaphysics, epistemology, and the philosophies of mind, language and science come together. 

We are located in building #4 of the Central Desert Complex (CDC).
